Reusable cutlery - an innovation from greenbox - sustainable bio quality
The vision of making plastic cutlery more environmentally friendly and reusable has now become reality with ‘reusable bio cutlery’. It had to be biodegradable. Then we had to take recycling into account. And our unique reusable cutlery was ready. Of course, it wasn’t that easy - this pioneering invention took a few years of research and development. This new bio cutlery has completely redefined what sustainable cutlery means in take-away food retail and catering. Find out here how everything came together and what this means for you and your customers:
Bio cutlery reinvented - revolutionised by greenbox - reusables to go
‘If you want something done properly, do it yourself!’ So, we took it into our own hands to develop and produce alternative plastic cutlery. The project that resulted in our ‘reusable bio cutlery’ was supported by the Federal Ministry for the Economy and Energy (BMWI) as part of the ‘Programm-Zentrale Innovation Mittelstand’ programme - or ZIM for short. With so much know-how, our highly motivated team of developers set off on their mission to develop an innovative composite material. We met the following targets:
– Temperature resistant up to +70 °C
– Suitable for injection moulding
Based on the knowledge gained through this project, we developed a blend of materials that we now use to produce injection-moulded reusable bio cutlery in Germany. The knives, forks and spoons are made from a completely new blend of bio plastic and wood powder. This reusable cutlery is a real alternative to standard plastic cutlery and is made from an astounding 80% renewable raw materials. This means it’s biodegradable. The wood powder used is a byproduct of the wood industry and comes from sustainably managed forests. Our bio cutlery is produced in Germany in compliance with our mission to reduce our carbon footprint to an absolute minimum. As a climate-neutral company, we always keep this in mind. We are incredibly proud of the results and look forward to offering this world first on the market - reusable bio cutlery as your clear conscience to go!
Bio cutlery to take away – cheap alternative to plastic cutlery – give-away
Biodegradable and reusable bio cutlery has been on our to do list for a long time. As we couldn’t find a product we were completely satisfied with, we have developed and produced one ourselves. We have given our all to make sure you can offer your customers cutlery to go with a clear conscience. Your customers can use the cutlery again and again, and even pop it in the dishwasher. So, this reusable cutlery made from our new composite material is the perfect alternative to single-use plastic cutlery. Furthermore, our bio cutlery is the perfect give-away to give to your customers. They will see their reusable cutlery again and again in their daily lives, reminding them of your business - they’ll be happy to come back to you. Reusable bio cutlery is an investment in the future in many respects!
